Top Three Reasons To Visit Walt Disney World In May

Top Three Reasons To Visit Walt Disney World In May


We are going to Walt Disney World. Yay! There has been a lot of behind the scenes planning going on around here. As you can probably imagine we are extremely excited! We love everything Disney. One look at our social media feed and the secret is out! We have been pretty loyal to Disney Cruise Line for the last few years, so we thought it was time to take another trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth. And since we love to share, we thought we would give you our top three reasons we are choosing to travel to Walt Disney World in May (other than my birthday and Mother's Day).


Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival


The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is the main reason we are traveling to Walt Disney World in May this time. We have looked on enviously over the past few years as our social media feed fills with glorious garden filled photos from Epcot every Spring. We have never been, but this year will change that! Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival runs from February 28 - May 28, 2018 this year. As part of the Festival, there are Outdoor Kitchens offering amazing food and drink options; Disney-themed topiaries; garden spaces and wildlife habitats; and even an outdoor concert series called Garden Rocks.

We are foodies, so I think we are most excited to try all the delectable treats the Festival has to offer. The Outdoor Kitchens are set up in World Showcase and are open daily from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM. CLICK HERE for a list of all the amazing offering this year. We will be sure to post plenty of pics of all the yummy creations we try throughout the trip!

The Weather


May in the Orlando area is usually warm, but most of the time not unbearably hot. Just the way we like it! We can freely swim in the pools without shivering but not bake in the heat all day long. Temps are generally in the mid 80’s. That doesn’t mean that it can’t get hotter. This is just general temperatures. The later in the month you go, the hotter it gets. Mid May does start rainy season so you need to be prepared to get a little wet, but showers usually move through at a decent pace and unlikely to rain out your entire day.

The Crowds


For the most part, after doing a lot of research, I think the beginning of May is one of the best times of  the year to visit Walt Disney World. Kids are still in school, so the summer rush has not started yet.  But it is after Spring Break so you don’t have to deal with those crazy crowds. If you check the crowd calendars, they are lower in May than during the peak summer months. There are many great crowd calendars out there. Two of my favorites and I think some of the most accurate are Kenny the Pirate and Dad’s Guide to WDW. Now it appears that crowd calendars are not as accurate a predictor of actual crowds as they have historically been in the past. Let’s face it, Walt Disney World just keeps getting busier and busier as years go on. But these calendars do help.

Is There Really A Bad Time to Go To Walt Disney World?


Honestly, I would go to Walt Disney World any time I had the chance. There is always something special to see or do going on, from holiday festivities to grand openings and everything in between. In fact, if we could have waited just a little bit longer and planned our trip at the end of June, we would have made the grand opening of Toy Story Land. While we are sad to miss this one, we are happy to take advantage of all the great things a trip to Walt Disney World in May has to offer (and now we have another great reason to plan another trip!)

I can hardly wait to share our trip with everyone. Stay tuned as our trip gets closer for some fun posts including tips and tricks about what to bring and wear. We are excited to be going to Walt Disney World in May. We scheduled the trip for my birthday which is coincidentally on Mother’s Day this year. I can’t think of a better way to spend the day than at the Most Magical Place on Earth with my most precious things on the planet!

  4. I love Disney - we have annual passes! I absolutely love the flower and garden festival. Food and wine fest used to be my favorite but flower and garden is easily a close second if not number one. It’s always so beautiful! The only reason I prefer food and wine is the weather has a chance of being a bit cooler.

Remember, they’d prefer to not use your services. But if you actually maintain a gentle, professional partnership, offering help and being in contact for around four to five weeks, you will usually manage to win a business interview. From there, a house listing follows. Many thanks Golf Matsuyama

  15. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose. Copenhagen itinerary

  43. “So, this is not going to be an optimal situation,” Johnson added. “We should not expect — and here I'm probably veering from the White House talking points — that the Afghan government on its own can hold its own against the Taliban. Those two factions need to come to some agreement at some point, and right now the Taliban has little incentive to do that.”
